Did ex-archbishop of Paris commit sexual assault?

France’s judiciary is examining allegations against former Archbishop of Paris Michel Aupetit. As the Paris public prosecutor announced on Tuesday, the preliminary investigations are about the suspicion of sexual assault on a vulnerable person.

The broadcaster BFMTV reported that the Paris diocese had previously approached the public prosecutor. Aupetit’s lawyer did not want to comment on the broadcaster.

The former Archbishop of Paris resigned in December 2021 following reports of a relationship with a woman. He had confirmed a connection to the woman when he was vicar general, but denied that it was a love affair.
